Mr BREEN (CALARE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - In to-day's issue of the Canberra Times appears a statement relating to a communication from the Prime Minister to the Premier of South Australia, Mr. Playford, regarding the central control of electrical equipment by the Commonwealth. The report states -

One of the features of the proposal would be the formation of a central pool of electrical generation equipment to be financed in the first instance by the Commonwealth, which will be available to supply any part of Australia.

Will the Prime Minister explore the possibility of providing from the pool of electrical generating machinery, turbines and power-house machinery for the purpose of utilizing the waters of the Wyangala dam and the Lachlan River in New South Wales?
